iPhone Dev Team to Jailbreak iPad 3 on iOS 5.1 with Entirely Different Method!
The iPhone Dev-Team has just announced that they are close to jailbreak iPad 3 on iOS 5.1 so buyers shouldn’t to update iOS 5.1. They also claimed that they have discovered three possible methods for jailbreaking iPad 3 that would be entirely different from i0n1c’s jailbreak for iOS 5.1 (just announced) and would also not be based on Pod2g’s exploits discovered earlier in jailbreaking of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 in Absinthe.
Here’s an excerpt of their post to know what they have actually said about their upcoming jailbreaking tool for iPad 3 on iOS 5.1.
● We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.
● Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!
● We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.
● That’s three different angles, and we’re not even including the continuous work @pod2g makes towards a new jailbreak!
The folks who have an iPad running older versions than iOS 5.1 should avoid updating to iOS 5.1 and contact the iPhone Dev-Team for help and info.
